The next time that your son or daughter needs a driving license, they might have to shell out more than just the fee amount, if Chandrababu Naidu has his way.Speaking on the occasion of an Organ Donation Drive recently, Chandrababu said, “I will donate my organs also.” Good, very good! But then came the shocker!Naidu said he would explore the possibility of making organ donation pledge mandatory while issuing driving licences.
For a driving license, one needs to know how to be able to ride the vehicle and pass the exam. What does organ donation have to do with it?As Chief Minister, he may do whatever is necessary to promote organ donation in the State, but, at the end of the day, it is a personal choice that cannot be forced on the people. What next?
Will he make organ donation mandatory for getting access to welfare schemes of the State government? It’s as ridiculous as asking Rajamouli to help with the construction of Amaravati.
